Why we vote - Wegene and Rudi 

 
 

Wegene and Rudi are a couple living in Austria. Rudi has been using a wheelchair ever since a skiing accident left him paralysed. He says that despite the difficulties, people in wheelchairs can live a high-quality life, especially in Europe where infrastructure is good and you are accepted.

“In many countries you are not allowed to vote so I think that it is important to express your opinion to go and vote and speak up about which direction you want Europe to go in," says Rudi.
